What educators are saying

These pattern cards were easy for the students to use both independently and in small groups. I highly recommend.
My grade 2 students loved using these in groups, trying to grow the patterns further. I have each group an easier one to start then a challenging one.

This fun math center activity is simple to prep and loads of fun for students. They will analyze the growing pattern featured on the card, recreate it with pattern blocks and then continue the pattern by 'growing' an additional few stages.

They will take one of the 60 cards provided and use regular classroom pattern blocks to construct the growing pattern.

Encourage your students to describe and discuss the pattern, linking it with numbers (e.g. It grows by adding 2 each time).

I've included:

  • detailed instructions
  • 60 growing pattern cards
  • a worksheet (either a recording worksheet or a fun-follow-up)
  • a cover page to help you organize your resources for future reference

These activity can be used in a structured game rotation program, as math centers or in guided math. Once taught, it also makes a fantastic 'fast-finisher' activities for revision of key concepts.
